"It's rare to find a game that does something so original so well, with every element of gameplay and design falling into place. Simogo has pulled it off with Beat Sneak Bandit. In my books it's a must buy, and such a shame it would be to miss out." - TouchArcade
"It's impossible not to fall in love with this funky little number." - Videogamer.com
"Beat Sneak Bandit is polished, challenging, wholly original and a heck of a lot of fun. It’s a great example of how presentation, control and design can come together to create a cohesive and extremely fun package. Don’t miss it!" - IGN
"Quick to get into but devilish in the detail, Beat Sneak Bandit makes all the right noises, and in what's already a strong year for mobile gaming, this is the best iPhone game I've played." - Eurogamer
"Every now and again though, a game comes along for iOS that knocks you for six, and re-ignites your passion for not just iOS gaming, but gaming in general. Well, Beat Sneak Bandit is one such game." - Touchgen
"It's an unlikely mix for sure, but Beat Sneak Bandit's smart blend of puzzling and beat-matching proves to be an ingeniously crafted delight." - Pocketgamer
"You'll be hard pressed to put this game down until you've 'clocked' it entirely - a must have for all iPhone gamers." - Appspy
"A true work of art, in so many ways. It's smart. It's challenging. It's gorgeous. But most importantly, it's fun - dizzying, dreamy, and delightful fun." - Gamezebo
- Added support for new devices
Ratings and Reviews
Make sure your ringer isn't silent
I originally published a one-star review that complained of no sound, even though my volume was maxed, my ringer was maxed, and I could play other audio just fine.
It was fixed by switching off the vibrate switch, which I didn't realize was enabled. When the game says "sound must be switched on," it means it.
I'll update this review with my impressions later.
The good: Clever level design. You can make the game as easy or hard as you want, because it's up to you how many collectibles you go after each level. It's hard and yet not frustrating , a balance that few games are able to achieve.
The bad: Very little really. You could say that the music isn't the greatest.
One of my favorite classic games
I'm so happy this has been updated to new phone sizes as well as 64-bit. This is one of my absolute favorite games; it was one of the first to take a one-tap style of gameplay and make it really good. The rhythm puzzle mechanics, the music, the art style: All of it is delightful. Get it and enjoy.
